Resolutions Update & Keep It Simple

This card was the Home Page Artist face for the week of August 10th at Gingersnap Creations!
Before I get to card business time to revisit the Summer Resolutions List (the stuff in blue is mission accomplished!)
The List (in no particular order)
1. paint upstairs hallway (I've had one coat up since April for cripes sake!) and laundry room
2. clean back bedroom (It's become the default junk room ugh!) kinda backslid though
3. work over the cable company for a new deal (I do this every summer) saved $40 a month
4. get crown moulding and built-ins installed in living room & repair screen door
5. take 2 tech classes for work (teachers don't party all summer :) we go to school:) )
6. open an Etsy store? (kinda on the fence here)
7. pay myself $1 for every time I walk the dog this summer- full disclosure $4 and a ticked dog!
8. re-certify my teaching license (this HAS to be done if I want to keep teaching. )
9. post 2 times a week items for all those challenges I want to play in!!! 
10. finish a scrapbook for a change!
4, 6, & 10 are 75% done.  This is already my most successful Summer yet!

Card Time!!!!  Here's the skinny for this week's SSDS challenge:
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday is looking for folks who can make a Clean and Simple card for this weeks throwdown.
If you've seen my other cards then you know CAS is no where in my vocabulary!  I think my mom and my grandpa would agree that "I did good".  :)  I got this Hero Arts stamp after my friend Lisa (78 thistles) made some stunning cards using this stamp.  I colored it with some Copics directly on the card and added the Amuse sentiment.  I thought this style card really lent itself to sharing sympathy with someone, but your card can have any theme.
Craftbrulee is our sponsor this week and they have provided an amazing prize package for the lucky winner of the challenge.  Check it out!

How fabulous is this package?!?  Wanna chance to win it?  Join us at SSDS and enter your "clean and simple" card!  Let me know if you join in, I'll stop by and give you some blog love. :)

  6. Wonderful card!!! Thanks for playing with us at Stampin' Royalty this week! :-)

  7. Really pretty card Moriah! So very different from my cards using the same stamp. It's fun to see how versatile the stamp is.
    Nice job on your to do list!

  8. Congrats on achieving all those goals Moriah!! I love your CAS card, I'm really into matching envelopes, I figure it tells the recipient there's something special inside!

  9. Wow you have done so good on your list. as I hang my head in shame thinking of mine.

  10. Hey Moriah!
    Love the cards, but then I pretty much love everything you make :-)
    Sounds like you've bitten away a good chunk of the work. Now I've got to ask you for tips on lowering my cable bill :-)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
